Minneapolis, MN Snow Day

I was just talking to a friend in Minnesota and wanted to add this LO that I had done a while back.  One of the things about Minneapolis in the winter is how bleak and dreary the days can be.  I tried to show that bleak outview in this LO that was of a time when the temperature outside was supposed to be below 60 degrees and the busses did not run.  Sometimes it is just too cold to stand outside and wait for a bus.

New Beginnings

It would seem that I am on a new journey. The last one ended quite unexpectedly a few weeks ago. My best friends in this city moved to Florida to retire. I am so excited for them as they begin a new chapter in their lives as well. How I wish I could find work in Florida but alas that will have to wait for now.

Here is a digital layout from their new journey and mine......

The sketch is from Jen Maceyunas and the elements are from a collaborative design package on Digital Scrap Book
